Key appointments to beef up Paribas team
BNP Paribas Real Estate are beefing up their retail property team in Ireland by recruiting Eoin Feeney and Mervyn Ellis (right), two former directors at HWBC. Both Feeney and Ellis have advised retailers such as Boots, Easons, Carl Scarpa, Monsoon and Café Sol.
In 2007, Mervyn Ellis secured the highest price ever for a retail lease in Ireland, €3m, for the Habitat lease on what is now the Topshop store on St Stephen's Green.
Eoin Feeney, who will join BNPPRE as an executive director, is probably best known for his role as advisor to Green Property at the Blanchardstown Centre.
